LOL, marriage must be terrible i'd imagine, its like being married to an annoying family member who is always asking you to do stuff for them until you become whiped and have no spine left, and then they accuse you of changing or having no passion left and go and cheat on you. Dam I feel sorry for married people. No wonder they always complain about how their lives suck

It's all in perspective.
If you're negative about marriage in general, there's no hope to have a good one because you'll self fulfill your own prophecy one nag at a time.

My parents have been happily married for 46 years, grandparents 66 years. I have been happily married almost 10.

I found communication, an open mind for compromise, and just having a good attitude was all it took. I am still madly in love with my husband,

and he gets laid more than anyone he personally knows.

You've described one far end of the spectrum when it comes to marriage. No need to feel sorry for me. Plenty of people are happily married and manage through life just fine.

I'll be feeling sorry for you when your 60, alone with no companion.

Your bitterness for marriage makes me think you've experienced a bad one. I feel sorry for you.

Been married for 27 years. Raised 6 kids.
Never felt whipped. Still have a spine and very strong back bone.
Still in love. No cheating ever occurred.
Sorry to hear you will probably never experience the bliss of real love since you have already prejudged marriage and think all marriages end in failure.
I wouldn't have had it any other way. And I am looking forward to how ever many years we have left to us. I hope it is another 27 years. Even that wont be enough.

From the many married people ive talked with, it seems the marriage relationship today is either a slice of heaven or a slice of hell...and not very often much inbetween. The subject of 'Marriage' needs to be part of every curriculum in High School across the nation with a hard look at the responsibilities, lifelong commitment, and the honor and respect that is supposed to be shown toward the other spouse. Certainly it would help counteract the Hollywood view of marriage where all the emphasis is placed on the Wedding day and/or 2 week Honeymoon.

Something else that should be absolutely mandatory, is a lengthy Pre Marital Course with trained Counsellors in order to obtain a marriage license. I think this alone would cause individuals to ascertain that they should forego or hold off till later being married. We need a greater sense of objectivity concerning the issue to hopefully balance out the often misleading (euphoric/semi-comatose) state couples find themselves in prior to and including the Engagement process .
